Roberto Firmino thought he had cancelled out Ollie Watkins' opener on the stroke of half-time but when the goal was checked by VAR, it was deemed that Diogo Jota was offside by the smallest of margins.
VAR took its time to determine whether Villa defender Matty Cash had got a touch on the ball and the verdict that he didn't make any contract meant the goal was subsequently chalked off.

Liverpool fans were incensed by the call, which followed on from Wolves' Willian Jose having a first Premier League strike ruled out in a similar situation against Fulham last night.

Excuse me, it's not a goal, Jota's sleeve is 0.005mm ahead of the defender. pic.twitter.com/6bxDPpcK6v- Mike (@iMike1892x) April 10, 2021

I'm the farthest thing from a Liverpool fan, but that is nothing short of a complete robbery.- Zach Lowy (@ZachLowy) April 10, 2021
You can't score with your hand, so why is Jota's sleeve being offsides considered worthy of nullifying a perfectly good goal?
Scrap it or change the rules. This is just painful now.
Yep Jota's sleeve was off had an immediate impact in the game, var got it right- Chris Latham (@clatham5) April 10, 2021

Jurgen Klopp's face was a picture, while skipper James Milner sought clarification from the official at half-time.
